1 1 Bidder Information Material Basic Generation Service (BGS) Load Statewide Auction Process 3 December 2010 | Philadelphia, PA

2 2 Agenda  Overview and Board Decision  Timeline  Application Process  Auction Rules

3 3 OVERVIEW AND BOARD DECISION

4 4 Key Building Blocks of Auction Process  There is a single statewide process:  There is a single statewide process: Offers for all BGS load (not already procured) solicited in one process  The products are full-requirements tranches:  The products are full-requirements tranches: Participants bid for the right to serve these tranches  Auction format is a Clock Auction:  Auction format is a Clock Auction: Prices tick down as long as more tranches are bid than needed  Contingency plan:  Contingency plan: Any supply not procured at Auction will be purchased through PJM-administered markets

5 5 One Auction Process for Two Types of Customers  BGS-FP Auction:  BGS-FP Auction: Smaller and mid-sized customers on fixed-price plan  Suppliers bid to serve tranches at a price in ¢/kWh  3-year supply period  BGS-CIEP Auction:  BGS-CIEP Auction: Larger customers on hourly-price plan  Suppliers bid to serve tranches at a price in $/MW-day  1-year supply period

6 6 Board Has Rendered its Decision on the Auction Process November 10, 2010  Board met on November 10, 2010 to consider all elements of the Auction Process  Board approved the EDCs’ BGS Proposal: the 2011 Auction Process will be substantially the same as in 2010 eliminated the current retail margin of 0.5¢/kWh lowered the CIEP threshold to 750 kW  In a parallel proceeding, the Board eliminated the current retail margin of 0.5¢/kWh and lowered the CIEP threshold to 750 kW starting June 1, 2011

7 7 Compliance Filing Was on November 24, 2010  Compliance filing documents  Compliance filing documents based on the November 10th decision were filed and posted on the Regulatory Process page on November 24, 2010: http://www.bgs-auction.com/bgs.auction.regproc.asp  Auction Rules  Supplier Master Agreements  EDC-Specific Addenda final documents  The Auction Rules, SMAs, and rate design information filed in compliance will become the final documents upon the Board decision on the compliance filing expect on December 6, 2010

8 8 BGS Customers  Customers who (if they take BGS) must take BGS on a CIEP tariff will be  All customers in certain rate classes, and  All customers at or over 750 kW no switching restrictions  There are no switching restrictions so that all BGS customers are free to come and go from BGS provided that they give appropriate notice to the EDC

9 9 CIEP Customers Some FP customers can opt in to CIEP  Non-residential FP Customers can opt-in to CIEP notify EDC  Customer must notify EDC by January 4, 2011 EDC For these rate classes, all customers on CIEP For these rate classes, Customers at or over 750 kW on CIEP (6/1/11—5/31/12) PSE&GHTS-HV, HTS-Sub, LPL-PLPL-S JCP&LGP, GTGS, GST ACETGSAGS-Primary, AGS-Secondary, MGS-Primary, MGS-Secondary RECOService Classification No. 7Service Classification No. 2

10 10 Adjustment of Supplier Payments for Transmission Rate Changes  Section 15.9 of the SMAs  Section 15.9 of the SMAs describes what happens with a transmission rate change  Decreases are reflected in supplier payments  Increases are tracked for the benefit of the supplier once Board approval is received—paid to the supplier when increase is final and no longer subject to refund  Changes to the transmission rate  Changes to the transmission rate include:  All surcharges in addition to the base NITS OATT rate (e.g., all applicable RTEP charges)  Changes to the transmission rate in effect as of the Auction date including formula rate changes  For clarity, each EDC will announce its transmission rate in effect as of the Auction date in early January

11 11 Other Fundamental Aspects of Auctions Are Similar to Last Year One Process—Two Auctions  Timelines of both the BGS-FP and BGS-CIEP Auctions are basically the same  Same announcements  Same application deadlines  Same information sessions  Same trial auction date one business day earlier  The BGS-CIEP Auction starts one business day earlier  NEW!Thursday,  NEW! BGS-CIEP Auction starts Thursday, February 3, 2011 Friday,  BGS-FP Auction starts Friday, February 4, 2011

12 12 Two Auctions, Two Contracts  Larger customers (CIEP) on an hourly-priced plan; smaller customers (FP) on a simpler fixed-price plan concurrent but separate  Auctions for the two types of customers are concurrent but separate  CIEP Auction determines the CIEP Price in $/MW-day  FP Auction determines an all-in price in ¢/kWh different contracts  Winning suppliers sign different contracts  BGS-CIEP Supplier Master Agreement and BGS-FP Supplier Master Agreement are different The bid for larger customers is separated from the bid for smaller customers

13 13 Two Approvals  Results of BGS-FP Auction are considered  Results are approved for all EDCs or for none not possible  It is not possible for results for one EDC to be approved without results for other EDCs being approved as well  Results of BGS-CIEP Auction are considered  Results are approved for all EDCs or for none not possible  It is not possible for results for one EDC to be approved without results for other EDCs being approved as well is possible  But it is possible that results of BGS-FP Auction are approved while results of BGS-CIEP Auction are not (or vice-versa) Board decides whether to approve results of each Auction separately

14 14 1-Year Term for BGS-CIEP Tranches, 3-Year Term for BGS-FP Tranches  BGS-CIEP: fixed percentage  A tranche for an EDC is a fixed percentage of that EDC’s BGS-CIEP load for one year 75 MW  A tranche is about 75 MW of eligible load  BGS-FP: fixed percentage  A tranche for an EDC is a fixed percentage of that EDC’s BGS-FP load for three years 100 MW  A tranche is about 100 MW of eligible load  Rolling procurement structure:  Rolling procurement structure: EDCs procure supply for approximately one-third of their BGS-FP Load each year for a three-year term

15 15 BGS-CIEP Auction: Four Products and a Single Statewide Load Cap  Tranche target:  Tranche target: Number of tranches available at the start of the Auction for each EDC  Statewide load cap:  Statewide load cap: No bidder can bid or win more than the load cap statewide EDCPSE&GJCP&LACERECOTotal Tranche Targets26145146 Statewide Load Cap16

16 CIEP Tranche is Percentage of Load  Total CIEP3,300 MW  Total CIEP load is about 3,300 MW on an eligible basis  BGS-CIEP Supplier provides energy, transmission, capacity, ancillary services, and any other service as may be required by PJM CIEP Loads and Tranche Sizes by EDC EDC CIEP Peak Load Share (MW) Tranche Size (%)MW-Measure PSE&G1,924.713.8574.03 JCP&L975.97.1469.71 ACE327.92065.58 RECO38.710038.7

17 17 BGS-CIEP Payment Flow Example BGS-CIEP Supplier wins 6 of 24 tranches (25% of Load) BGS-CIEP Supplier wins 6 of 24 tranches (25% of Load) $135/MW-day  Capacity—The final Auction price is $135/MW-day. The capacity obligation totals 30,000 MW-days for the month  Supplier is paid 25% of 30,000 MW-days x $135/MW-day, or $1,012,500 $50/MW-day  Transmission—OATT is $50/MW-day. The transmission obligation totals 36,000 MW-days for the month  Supplier is paid 25% of 36,000 MW-days x $50/MW-day, or $450,000  Supplier would also receive any payments under Section 15.9 $6/MWh  Ancillary services—Payment is $6/MWh and monthly energy is 500,000 MWh @ customer meter; 515,000 MWh assuming a loss expansion factor of 1.046759 and adjusting for distribution and transmission losses as de-rated for PJM marginal losses of 1.601%  Supplier is paid 25% of 515,000 MWh x $6/MWh, or $772,500 $50/MWh  Energy—Real time LMP is $50/MWh and for hour 1, energy @ customer meter is 800 MWh; 824 MWh assuming a loss expansion factor of 1.046759 and adjusting for distribution and transmission losses as de-rated for PJM marginal losses of 1.601%  Supplier is paid 25% of 824 MWh x $50/MWh, or $10,300 for hour 1  Other hours are settled in the same way 0.015¢/kWh  CIEP Standby Fee—The CIEP Standby Fee is 0.015¢/kWh. Energy used by all CIEP Customers is 1,000,000 MWh @ customer meter  Supplier is paid 25% of 1,000,000MWh x $0.15/MWh, or $37,500

24 24 Provisional EDC-Specific Seasonal Factors summer factorwinter factor  Each EDC has a summer factor and winter factor used to translate the final Auction price into the supplier payment rate by season  Seasonal factors in effect for entire term of BGS-FP Supplier Master Agreement set the summer and winter factors to 1.0  The EDCs will set the summer and winter factors to 1.0 for any EDC whose rate design methodology results in atypical values— BGS-FP Supplier is then paid the Auction price for every kWh of load served final EDC-specific seasonal factors  The final EDC-specific seasonal factors will be determined no later than 6 days before the Auction and, once determined, will apply for the entire three years of the supply period  Below is the compliance filing update to these factors EDCPSE&GJCP&LACERECO Summer Factor 1.0000 1.03761.0000 Winter Factor 1.0000 0.97591.0000

25 25 Can a Supplier Ever Need to Pay an EDC?  Possible payments from Supplier to EDC  Tranche Fee for cost of administering the Auction (July 2011 invoice)  On a monthly basis, any PMEA / FMEA adjustments can go either way  Also: Supplier settles with PJM for costs of meeting LSE obligation  Any corrections or adjustments that would have resulted in changes to the PJM settlement, but for which the deadline has passed, will be settled between the EDC and the supplier

26 26 Migration for Customers Remaining on FP Is More Modest  Statewide migration is 20% of the load but only 2% of the accounts Migration Among FP Customers with Peak Load Share of <750kW AccountsLoad (MW) EDCTotalSwitching%TotalSwitching% PSE&G 8/1/10270,66523,6788.753,586,3751,299,44136.23 JCP&L 6/1/101,095,75714,1451.295,561,408793,52814.27 ACE 6/11/10547,7837,1771.312,084,403282,15413.54 RECO 6/1/1071,5027451.04439,19652,14011.87 Statewide1,985,70745,7452.311,671,3822,427,26320.80

28 28 Credit Provisions  BGS-CIEP—  BGS-CIEP—Credit Exposure is $70,000/tranche  BGS-FP—  BGS-FP—Two separate requirements  Mark-to-Market requirement  Independent credit requirement is $2.4M/tranche at beginning of supply period and declines over the term of the contract  Unsecured credit line and credit limits depend on all BGS obligations  Credit limit set together for FP Mark-to-Market and CIEP credit exposures  Unsecured credit line for FP independent credit requirement set separately

29 29 Changes Are Possible During Three-Year Period eliminated the retail margin  Board has eliminated the retail margin lowered the CIEP threshold to 750 kW  Board has lowered the CIEP threshold to 750 kW  Rate design subject to annual review  Changes to RPS and changes to the alternative compliance payments are possible in the future Decisions that affect BGS-FP Suppliers who win at the 2011 BGS-FP Auction

30 30 BGS Supplier is Responsible for Meeting RPS  The EDCs will submit the required annual compliance reports on behalf of BGS-FP and BGS-CIEP Suppliers  To the extent permitted by applicable regulatory and contractual provisions, EDCs will make available to BGS Suppliers RECs from Committed Supply: BGS-FP Suppliers  RECs to BGS-FP Suppliers from PSE&G, JCP&L and ACE BGS-CIEP Suppliers  RECs to BGS-CIEP Suppliers from ACE

31 31 BGS Supplier Must Meet Class I, Class II and Solar Requirements  Compliance with Class I and II requirements must be demonstrated using RECs issued by PJM-EIS GATS (a portion of Class I must be met with solar)  For information and forms, see: www.pjm-eis.com  Please contact GATS Administrator for questions:  Phone: 610-666-2245; Fax: 610-771-4114  RECs, including those based on solar electricity or electricity generated on a customer’s premises (“behind the meter RECs”), are issued by PJM-Environmental Information Systems (PJM-EIS), through the Generation Attribute Tracking System (GATS)  PJM-GATS is responsible for the issuing, tracking and trading of Solar RECs

33 33 The Solar Act Solar Act  On January 18, 2010, The Solar Energy Advancement and Fair Competition Act (“Solar Act”) was signed into law  Amends the original P.L. 1999, c.23 legislation and establishes a fixed GWh requirement in the aggregate for SRECs for all third party suppliers and BGS Suppliers that began on June 1, 2010  The schedule establishes requirements through May 31, 2026 fixed GWh requirements are statewide  For the three years of the BGS-FP supply period, the fixed GWh requirements are 442 GWH for 2011-12, 596 GWH for 2012-13, and 772 GWH for 2013-14 statewide  A copy of the Solar Act is available here:  A copy of the Solar Act is available here: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2008/Bills/A4000/3520_R3.PDF

34 34 New Requirement Is Not a Percentage exempt  One-third of the supply used to meet BGS Load for the June 2011 to May 2012 period is exempt  Existing BGS contracts are required to meet the solar percentage RPS requirement under the pre-existing legislation percentage requirement  Although the requirement is not a percentage, the fixed requirements could, after all data is known for the energy year, be expressed as a percentage requirement  Final regulations have not been issued by the Board and we do not represent that the final regulations will necessarily reflect the method described in this presentation  The percentages will depend upon actual statewide load and on actual BGS Load for the year

35 35 Translation Into A Percentage strictly for illustrative purposes  Percentages are calculated strictly for illustrative purposes on the next slide 2011/12 percentage  The 2011/12 percentage is calculated as follows  Estimate the solar requirement of the exempt BGS Suppliers and subtract from the fixed GWh requirement  Divide by estimates of the approximate total CIEP and FP eligible load minus exempt BGS Load 2012/13 and 2013/14 percentages  The 2012/13 and 2013/14 percentages are obtained by dividing the fixed GWh solar requirements by estimated statewide load developed assuming a 1% per year growth simplifications  Further, the following simplifications were used  No adjustments for factors such as marginal loss deration, load growth, or contraction that may occur  Assume migration is the actual level from August 1, 2009 through July 31, 2010
